Is Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey Going On OTT?



Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor’s  first  release   in  almost three years has been  put on  hold   after the most recent outbreak of  the  Covid pandemic. Shahid’s Jersey was all set to release  on December 31 right after  Kabir Khan’s  ’83. Both films  are set in the cricket world.

 However the producers are not prone  to be mindful of  their leading man’s sentiments at  a time of  crisis such as  this.And we will be soon hearing an announcement  of Jersey being  premiered on an OTT platform.
